  1. This recipe sounds yummy. Similar to mine, but with bran flakes and nuts. Interesting. And I never thought of using chunky applesauce. Maybe next time I’m at the store, I’ll pick up the stuffs and give it a whirl.

    Of course, you know what I’m going to say here… I love this book! So much. Squee.
